Tucson man gets 19-year sentence in fatal DUI crashby A.J. Flick on Mar. 14, 2009, under Local, Special
A Tucson man was sentenced Friday to 19 years in prison for a drunken driving crash that involved three cars and killed his passenger.
Pima County Superior Court Judge Deborah Bernini sentenced Mike Allen Schomisch, 45, to 10.5 years for a manslaughter charge in the November 2007 death of Gregory Allgood, 45.
Bernini imposed a total of 8.5 years for other charges including aggravated DUI, aggravated assault, criminal damage and endangerment.
Police said Schomisch was driving his pickup west in the 4900 block of East 22nd Street about 7:20 p.m. Nov. 18, 2007, at high speed when he rear-ended another pickup, pushing it across a raised median and into oncoming traffic, where it collided with a sport utility vehicle.
The three drivers sustained minor injuries, but Allgood later died at a hospital.
